1930 LEICA Ia, f/3.5 ELMAR, FOFER RF, EARLY ETRIN CASE & RED BOX + ORIG. 1925 AD
COMPLETE EARLY CAMERA with NO RESERVE! VERY ORIGINAL 1930 LEICA I, Model A OUTFIT. Lightly used Leica Model A “hockey stick” body. F/3.5 5cm Elmar, meters. Uncommon ETRIN “single logo” outfit case – early. 1930s LEITZ red box. Original 1925 LEICA launch ad. If you’d bought a Leica in 1930, this outfit is pretty much what you’d have walked out of the shop with.. 1930 LEICA I, MODEL A. In outstanding original condition, not modified, upgraded or messed with. It has not been standardized (no “0” on lens flange). I think this camera is Type #9, the non-export version as described in v. “The 10 Variations of the Classic Leica IA with f/3.5 Elmar”. The camera has not been film tested, but appears to be working well – smooth, light wind-on, shutter sounds correct on all speeds (except possibly “Z”). Feels like it may have been serviced in the last 5 – 10 years. Did not check condition of blinds. F/3.5 5cm ELMAR with no number, so it’s pre-1932. It’s almost certainly the original lens for this camera body. It has a shiny barrel (always a sign of light use), and a vintage bakelite cap. The lens appears very clean with just a couple of marks on the front element, but I have not removed the lens and checked from the inside for haze, dust, etc. Focus and iris are free and smooth. VERY slight irregularity on rim, hardly visible. EARLY FOFER BIG-DIAL RANGEFINDER. (also no number) is clean and bright, a little paint loss by the Leitz logo, second image is slightly faint but still visible. LATE’20’s E TRIN LEATHER CASE shows some repair, marks and wear to the straps, but is intact, no tears. The single Leitz logo on the top of the case identifies this as one of the earliest examples of this case. Later ones have two logos. THE EARLY RED LEITZ BOX from 1932, quite hard to find these days. It holds the entire outfit, including the ETRIN case. This box originally held Leica #70816, a standardized Ic, see box base photo. The outfit also includes a correct Leitz cassette tube, with two metal cassettes which don’t, however, show the Leitz name. THE 1925 LEICA LAUNCH AD. Is kind of a classic, quite well known. It’s original, not reproduction, and in perfect condition. The item “1930 LEICA Ia, f/3.5 ELMAR, FOFER RF, EARLY ETRIN CASE & RED BOX + ORIG. 1925 AD” is in sale since Saturday, September 09, 2017.
